Epicure Potatoes to Eat

See tab below for details

Epicure is the original ‘Ayrshire’ early potato and was bred by James Clark in England.   Also known as ‘Ayrshires’, or ‘Ayrshire Earlies’ the traditional early potato in that region, Epicure is a floury, white fleshed variety that is round in shape. By far one of the best tasting first earlies, these potatoes are now making a comeback by popular demand.  An old heritage variety good to boil, mash or enjoy them with a salad.

Free UK Delivery. Love Potatoes. Potato House

Your Potatoes to Eat will be sent on a 48 hour courier.  However, we work quite rurally and we have an early pick up.  We need to have orders in the day before to be able to get the order together before our courier arrives.  Orders received in the morning will not be dispatched until the following working day.

For the vast majority of orders, we do not charge a surcharge for Scottish Highlands and Islands and other remote areas.  However, we reserve the right to contact you if we can't get a viable rate. Unfortunately, for large or extremely remote orders, it is likely that we will need to pass on some haulage charge.

If you wish to pick up we offer a 15% discount.  By default, this option will only appear for local postcodes.  If yours doesn’t appear, use our postcode DD3 0QN in the “Deliver to Address”.    You need to select local pick up and also put code Pickup in the coupon box.  Also to help us, put “pick up” in the “deliver to address”.  We will contact you when your order is ready. We operate on a working farm with machinery, vehicles and livestock and so please keep children and pets inside your car when picking up. This is only available for orders up to £50 – if you wish to pick up a larger order, please contact us prior to ordering.

If we get a parcel returned to us due to wrong details we will charge you postage to re-send.  Please check the details on your confirmation note and inform us immediately of any mistakes.  Small typos are easy to do!

The Slow Food Ark of Taste

The Ark of Taste is a key international project of the Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity. It aims to catalogue and promote quality products from around the world that are rooted in culture, history and tradition and that are in danger of disappearing. We are proud to have these potatoes in our repertoire and are working with the Ark of Taste to have more of our varieties listed. To read more about this, see their page.

This project strives to draw attention to the products and the history behind them, inspiring people to take action to protect them.

90% of potatoes sold by Potato House are our own production. Each year, a few varieties are sourced from other local growers to complete our range. The potatoes are all certified and are of the same high quality that the home-grown ones are. This variety has been bought in for 2024.

We abide by the rules set in The Potatoes (Scotland) Regulations 2015, as do all our trusted suppliers.

Love Potatoes!  Potatoes to Eat range will change throughout the season.  Although we grow over 90 varieties this is mainly for seed potatoes and not all our varieties will be available in our To Eat range.  Let us know what you would like to see in this range - we welcome your feedback on this new venture.

We aim to have potatoes 9 months of the year for you and are looking to extend this for 2024-25.

If a variety has COMING SOON we intend on having this for you in this season.  We have to plan storage and washing facilities and can't give a certain date until a few days before we have it for you. We will have better plans in the future once we get into a routine.

If a product has DELAY TO REBAG on it, it means that we need to check stock, and wash and re-bag if we still have some left.  This is not a guarantee that we do have more in stock.  We have to check.

If a product has SOLD OUT, it really does mean sold out for this season.
